|Gorgeous little mandarins sold with the branches and leaves still attached, eaten on a kitch plastic plate provided by the hotel when they saw we had brought fruit to eat. Kind and lovely!|

Little messyfish and I then got changes and crossed the road to the beach. Not so bad. There is a crossing with a set of lights right there at the hotel entrance. Mostly the traffic stops! Things were looking up for us already. He had a big long play on the beach. He ran and ran along the tide line. It was so wonderful to have the space and smell the sea air, and be able to move around freely! I was however having great difficulty in keeping up with little messyfish. I needed to keep up, because as the waves went out, he ran along the tide line closer to the water. Then suddenly the wave would come back in and he would fall. I need to keep up so he didnt get swept out. I also needed to keep up, so I could help him to avoid all the rubbish on the beach. Coming from Sydney originally, and living long perids of my life on the northern beaches, I was NOT expecting the amount and types of rubbish that was on the beach. It was disgusting. It was freaking me out, because the safe running and playing space I had come to Nha Trang for was not really safe. My boy was a fast runner. Those broken motorbike helmets, dead dogs, barnacle covered styrofoam boxes, random cracked plastic objects and squishy plastic bags of rubbish were being whooshed around in the waves, in out. My boy was running near and afar from these dirty and sharp objects. He would lie on his stomach and paddle and dig in the sand as the water washed up around him, along with the big rubbish objects.
